GAA Updates

Congratulations to our talented LGFA U-12s who won the North Kerry Division 3 final last week against a strong Ballymac side.

These girls are just getting better and better. I’m thinking some of the Kerry Ladies magic is rubbing off on these talented young stars. Well done to all involved. You make us proud.

Senior Football League Division 3

Knock was the venue for the much anticipated encounter between Brosna and Knocknagoshel.

The last time the clubs met was in 2012 so it’s accurate to say there was a lot of chatter in advance of the throw in. It’s was strange to see hefty shoulders and bone crunching tackles between players who have stood shoulder to shoulder in the underage amalgamated team of Knock/Brosna.  But perhaps that’s the nature of GAA. It’s all very local and very personal. 

The match didn’t fail as a spectacle. The teams were evenly matched in terms of wides and overturns. The game reached critical mass in the final quarter when it was a tit for tat point scoring competition. The low score of 9 points each doesn’t do justice to the intensity and atmosphere shown by one of the biggest crowds for a league game so far this year. Glad to see the old rivalry shows no signs of abatement. Brosna 0 09. Knocknagoshel 0 09.
